They shouldn't have bring and buy sales so close to Christmas!

The day started great....The kids were excited.....A non uniform day....Taking old toys in for the bring and buy sale.....

We went to pick them up expecting them to come out with something old and tatty....

Noooo!! 

Becky had bought her sister a present....She was so proud of herself....Was sure Ellie would love it....She whipped the surprise out of her bag....It was BUZZ 'bliddy' LIGHTYEAR!! 

The same one I'd spent weeks umming and ahhhing about buying Ellie for Christmas.....It caused many an argument....Yes Becky had bought her sister Ellie the same toy as we had bought her as her main Christmas present!! 

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.....

Then we thought PHEW! It doesn't work properly!! It wasn't lighting up or talking.....Phew! We had been saved....Noooooo!! 2 minutes of fiddling and she had it working!! 

We got home had a look and there are tiny differences between the 2 Buzz's....

For now she can have Buzz her loving sister bought her and the other at Christmas.....

I'm a bit sad....It has taken some of the magic away from Christmas morning....Ellie has wanted a Buzz Lightyear for so long.....

It has made her day!!...Just a shame it wasn't Christmas day! Becky is the best sister ever!!
